  • commercial kitchen design, equipment purchasing and installation





"Michelle is very helpful when starting a business. With 'Pick and Preserve' she really helped me capture my idea, she supported my vision, and she encouraged me when I was overwhelmed. The best part is how she is as invested as you are." -Ashlie H.
